Join us on Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th November
Brighouse’s festive season officially gets underway on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th November with an amazing food and craft market, live music and, of course, a range of Christmas fun for all the family – including the switch-on of the town’s Christmas lights.
The event, which takes over the whole town centre, attracts thousands each year and this year is set to be no exception with over 70 stalls packed with the best locally produced foods and crafts and Father Christmas turning on the Christmas lights on Saturday afternoon.
Organised by the Brighouse BID, the whole town is part of the event – with carol singing and school choirs entertaining crowds throughout the weekend.
Highlights of the weekend will include:
- Festive music on the stage on Bradford Road
- Carol Singing from local Primary Schools
- A Birds of Prey display
- Santa’s Grotto at Overgate Furniture Store
- Street entertainers
- Refreshment Stall with hot chocolate mulled wine, tea and coffee with proceeds going to continue with future events
On Saturday, the market is open between 10 am and 5 pm with the town’s Christmas lights being switched on by Father Christmas in his horse-drawn sleigh at around 4 pm. The market re-opens at 10 am on Sunday and runs through until 4 pm.
Lauren Barber from Brighouse BID said:
“We are looking forward to the ever-popular Christmas Market returning to Brighouse this year. It is always one of the highlights of Brighouse’s events calendar and this year promises to be no exception with music and festivities across the town centre. The market will showcase award-winning pies, delicious handmade fudge, an array of jams and chutneys as well as unique gifts ready for Christmas.”
“We are delighted that Father Christmas is also, once again, taking time out of his busy schedule to join us to turn on the Christmas Lights on Saturday afternoon.
“With everything from school choirs singing carols, funfair rides and street entertainers, there really is something for everyone as Brighouse begins the festive season in its usual style.”
